From a week-long egg hunt to sweet brunches up and down Stephen Ave, Easter Weekend downtown is sure to be busy. Check out some of the happenings for this colourful holiday!


What: #COREeaster
Where: The Core
When: March 19 - 31

It’s easy to join in the fun; retailers will hide plastic Easter eggs either in their stores or throughout the common areas of the shopping centre for shoppers to find. For all clues on your hunt, follow The Core Twitter and Instagram accounts on where the eggs are stashed. Clues will be sent out throughout the day, so make sure to check back! Inside each colourful egg you will find a prize voucher for exciting retailer prizes such as gift cards, swag, gift baskets and more that can be claimed either at the participating retailer’s cash register or Guest Services (located on level 3).

The morning of Sunday, April 1, features a gourmet brunch hosted by local drag entertainers.
